March is Women’s History Month and it’s significant to reflect on the many important contributions women have made to society, including in finance. Women’s contributions and accomplishments have largely been overlooked and consequently omitted from mainstream culture. This month’s observance had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 originally called “Women’s History Week.” Then in 1987, after Congress continued to pass resolutions, the President proclaimed March “Women’s History Month.” Many events over the past half-century have helped to expand the financial rights of U.S. women along with courageous women who persisted to make positive changes for their communities.
